Consell reminds islanders of mandatory public health measures, calling for personal responsibility and civic collaboration to tackle pandemic

Urging respect for public health protocol in order to tackle the pandemic and curb spread of Covid-19, the Formentera government is calling on islanders to report unlawful behaviour, like the party held in Punta Prima on the morning of 7 January, which authorities learned about thanks to a tip from a neighbour. The Consell encourages islanders to report illegal activity to the Formentera Local Police, Civil Guard or 112. Illegal gatherings such as the one in Punta Prima are punishable by fines for organisers and participants. Rising numbers of new coronavirus cases in recent weeks and unfolding post-holiday developments complicate the situation and make the need for extreme caution even more acute.

Formentera is currently in tier 3 of public health orders, meaning social and family get-togethers both indoors and out must be limited to six, with islanders encouraged to limit contact outside stable household bubbles. Travel is forbidden between 12 midnight and 6.00am.
